      Pre-Match: Brentford v Liverpool Sat 17th Feb 12:30 Kick Off
      Feb 11, 2024 12:30:18 pm
      Big game coming up against Brentford, who are in indifferent form, winning 2 of their last 6. They currently sit 14th in the table, 6 points above the drop zone.

      We have a home game against Luton 4 days after this then the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea 4 days after that, so rotation will be needed given the injuries we currently have.

      Alisson and Gomez should return from illness. Bradley will return from compassionate leave and Salah is returning to first team training on Monday. TAA will probably miss this one given he’s injured his knee again. Elliott deserves a start after his display at the weekend but he’s so effective from the bench, it’s a difficult one. Brentford are a big strong team.

      With the above considered I’d go with this line up, potential subs in brackets.

      Alisson

      Gomez (Bradley)
      Konate
      Van Dijk (c)
      Robertson

      Mac Allister (Elliott)
      Endo
      Jones (Gravenberch)

      Jota (Salah)
      Nunez (Gakpo)
      Diaz

      Subs:

      Kelleher (GK)
      Bradley
      Quansah
      Tsimikas
      Elliott
      Gravenberch
      Clark
      Salah
      Gakpo

      Injured:

      Alexander-Arnold
      Matip
      Szoboszlai
      Thiago
      Bajcetic
      Doak

      Going for a 1-3 win for the Reds

      Alisson Gomez Konate Virgil Robbo Endo Mac Jones Salah Nunez Diaz

      Subs: Kelleher Kostas Quansah Grav Harvey Gakpo Jota

      Reckon we'll sneak a 1-0, won't be a pretty game given the negative manner the Danish Southgate sets his team.

      No, 1 draw and 1 loss so far.

      Won all 3 home games, just come unstuck when we've gone there.

      Give toney the chances Burnley spurned yesterday and play like that and we won't be winning there this season either.

      True but we'll likely have Ali Konate and 1 of Gomez/Bradley back or someone that can at least muster into sprint at RB. That's 3 key cogs in our defence.

      Every game is different, I don't see Brentford being as adventurous and giving it as much of a go like Burnley did tbh.

      They've scored six goals against us in the previous two fixtures at their place and with Toney back we'll be doing well to go there and keep a clean sheet. Any f*cking win will do. Dog ugly, don't care. We'll need a superhuman effort from here to the end of the season to have any chance of winning the league.

      It’s weird season - against any traditional top 6 (bar Chelsea) we don’t really look like winning.

      Yet against anyone else, even if we’re behind there’s a good chance and belief we can win.

      To me, that’s unlike a klopp team.

      Realistically I can’t see us beating Spurs, City or United.

      Just hope city and Arsenal drop points again.

      NB: Team no longer available

      The team selects itself since we have so many injuries. Come on Reds.

      I agree. It's draws that's held us back. We've lost the head to head against arsenal. The head to heads are important.

      We need to be top when city play arsenal and win our game that round. We just have to win every game. Nothing else will do.

      Next week looks like a banana skin. Toney will be licking his lips

      Real tricky game and plenty of rest Mo on the bench so exactly same front 6. Bradley and Konate come in for Trent and Quansah

      We all know there are no easy games in the EPL, Brentford away is no exception, however I’d like to think that we’ve got a bit more in us quality wise to go there and get the three points,
      We weren’t at our best Vs Burnley, out of shape, imbalanced and we scraped thru in the end, against the Bees we’ll be better equipped with Konate back in the fold, and young Conor back as rwb, …still no Mo yet although I think he’ll be back for the final so we might see him get some minutes….id go with this….


                              Alisson
             Bradley. Konate. Virgil. Robbo
                              Endo
                 Macca.             Jones
             Diaz.          Jota.       Nunez

      Jota arms behind his back though......a sign of nerves. A man that knows his place in the team is not protected!!

      Is this the clearest sign yet than we'll see Mo from the start!!  :o
